impact development fee tidff exemptions; eliminate project-specific references in exemptions applicable to redevelopment areas, and make such exemptions dependent on the terms of the controlling development agreement, redevelopment plan, interagency agreement or other contract entered into by the city; require that the tidf be calculated based on the rate in effect and the time of issuance of the first construction document; and making environmental findings, and findings of consistency with the general plan, and the eight priority policies of planning code, section 101.1. >> the clerk: sf 21234 >>supervisor scott weiner: thank you. i'm the author of item no. 2. this legislation before us makes technical amendments to the transit impact development fee by our board of supervisors unanimously in 2012. these amendments will ensure that all projects that are covered by the general transit impact development fee do pay this fee in all parts of the city. the transit impact development fee is a key part of our funding system for public transportation in the city and it is designed to ensure that development that general rates auto trips or other types of transportation trips pay their fair share to help cover those transit impact. this is not the type of development assess
11:26 pm
the type of development fee. for example exemptions for housing and non-profit user fee remain as the development fee. instead the project and redevelopment areas are treated fairly and equitably and consistent with the adoptive plan for the area. this will help us develop good public transportation options in the neighborhood. this was considered by the planning commission last december and supported by the commission unanimously. in 2012, the legislative update to the transit impact developmentf ordinance by mayor lee included reference to some form of redevelopment area plan but not all. in working closely with occi, the planning department and mta, we agreed that the ordinance needed to be clarified so that we would not have some plan areas covered by the transit
11:27 pm
development fee but not others. so, again, this ordinance does clarify the applicability of the transit impact developmentf and the extent to which it applies. for for example instead of calling out mission bay project from being exempt across the board, this legislation required deferral to the mission bay development plan. that plan states the project of mission bay were exempt for 10 years from the plan adoption and that expired 5 years ago. the legislation will not extend transit impact fees to mission bay which are more general to transit impact development ordinance. lastly the planning department will describe the ordinance to make other minor and technical amendment in terms of timing and fee collection in order to make transit impact development consistent with other impact fees. i now want to invite lisa chen from the
11:28 pm
planning department to describe the legislation. miss chen? >> thank you. good afternoon supervisors. i'm lisa chen with the planning department. i'm joined by the planning department and from sf mta. the ordinance today is a proposal to amend the transit impact development fee, the city's primary mechanism for our transit system. the proposed ordinance would clarify and broaden language for projects subject to a development agreement or other similar agreement entered into by the city. the proposal also includes minor administrative improvement including changes to deadlines providing certain types of the exemptions and timing and method of calculating the fee.
11:29 pm
collectively these changes are to simplify the administration and making it easiest for project sponsors to understand the policy and consistent with other impact fees. it's with new non-residential development to fund munis capital cost and system maintenance. due to increased service. the fee includes for residential projects, projects creating less than 800 square feet of new development. projects considered charitiably exempt and projects consisting of land uses. the proposed ordinance does not create new or ordinary categories of exemption. the main intent of the ordinance is to clarify the languages regarding the ordinance to a development agreement or other similar document which would include a redevelopment plan, owner
11:30 pm
participation agreement, or inter agency cooperation agreement. for this project specifies the term of the development agreement or other similar document would determine whether or not the project would be exempt from transit impact development fee. the existing language which explicitly identifies mission bay only to all areas in the city for agreement which restrict the application. this acknowledges the fact that larger development projects may have transit impacts and structure needs and to make these improvements themselves. by entering into a development agreement or other equivalent agreement the city may negotiate a packet that is captured in a citywide fee. the
